The trailer promos for X-men First Class were SO awesome! Yet, the music used in them, which made those trailers as fantastic as any other feature of them, were not on the X-men First Class soundtrack! I don’t know why that is, but below is a 7 minute extended version of that music if you love it as much as I do!

Congratulations to the Japanese women soccer team for winning the 2011 FIFA World Cup in soccer!
They fought courageously, coming back from a goal down twice reasonably late in the game to tie it 2-2 in extra time. Then they won it decisively on in penalty kicks, not needing to finish the set to win it 3-1, becoming the first Asian soccer World Cup champions. Absolutely true to their underdog label to the very end!
The US may have seemed to have dominated play, with 27 shots to a dozen or so by the Japanese. However, it was all an illusion. The Japanese had more shots on goal than the US, at 6-5. The Japanese also had the ball 53% of the time.
The US was the flashier team, but the Japanese was the more consistent team.
Talk about justice, or karma! The Boston Bruins won Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals against the Vancouver Canucks in all the ways the Canucks had beaten them in Vancouver in three previous games. You can get the stats and game highlights elsewhere. I’ve got the karmic analysis here… just the way Vancouverites like to think about the universe. ;-)
Li Na of China won the French Open today to become the first Chinese to win a tennis Grand Slam major tournament! Aside from the historic nature of the accomplishment, the future impact of how Li Na achieved this success on the Chinese tennis, athletic and general culture will be the defining impact of this moment.
Recently, a slew of brilliant one minute X-men First Class movie trailers came out, each focusing on a character in the movie. This was brilliant because while the X-men have their story, each character, of course, has his/her own story, struggling for acceptance, identity and place in a society that generally rejects them. You will struggle to find a good movie with so many individual story lines and strong characters. Even the minor characters have a whole history behind them that is intriguing because they have those elements of epic struggles for acceptance, identity and place to their character!
These short character trailers were so effective because add an additional dimension of intrigue and interest to the movie and makes it personal to the fan, creating a connection with each character. Originally, they were an MTV exclusive, but that lasted for about a day before someone captured it in high definition to put it on YouTube. Below is the collection thus far, along with a final longer X-men First Class trailer out a week before this post.
Get this music (Half the Man by Kopius Few and Methodic Doubt).
Banshee, or Sean Cassidy, possesses a “sonic scream” capable of harming enemies’ auditory systems and causing physical vibrations. However, it is the latter which he uses with incredible intelligence and power to do incredible damage and help himself fly on the sonic waves he generates.
